In Bombay, 1921, Perveen Mistry is a newly joined female lawyer in her father's law firm, breaking barriers as one of the first female lawyers in India. She is particularly interested in protecting women's rights, a passion fueled by her personal history. Mistry Law is handling the will of Mr. Omar Farid, a wealthy Muslim mill owner who has passed away, leaving behind three widows. Perveen notices something odd as she goes through the papers - all three widows have signed over their inheritance to a charity, leaving them with no means of support. This raises Perveen's suspicion, and she begins to investigate the matter.

The Farid widows live in purdah, which is a strict practice of seclusion where women are not allowed to leave the women's quarters or speak to men. Perveen suspects that the widows may be taken advantage of by their guardian, and as she delves deeper into the case, tensions escalate to murder. Perveen realizes that her instincts were correct about the will, and it's her responsibility to uncover the truth of what really happened on Malabar Hill and ensure that no one else is in danger. Perveen's dedication to protecting women's rights is put to the test as she navigates through a complicated case with cultural, legal, and personal implications.
